POLICE are appealing for witnesses after £3,400 was stolen from Tesco Express, Chippenham.

At 5.10am this morning (August 15), ), four men broke in through the front doors of the store in Hathaway Retail Park.

Once inside, the men broke cash boxes and took the money before quickly fleeing the scene.

PC James Isaacs said: “All four men had their faces covered and were wearing dark clothing. They were carrying crowbars and sledgehammers at the time.

“I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident - maybe you were walking or driving past the area, or any businesses in the area who may have CCTV footage of the individuals, or details of any vehicles that may have been used.

“We would also like to urge local people and businesses to remain vigilant and report any suspiciously activity to 101 or 999 in an emergency.”
